Chibi Robo Photo Capture

For Chibi-Robo fans, Wednesday is a good day.

During this morning’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, company president Satoru Iwata announced that Chibi-Robo: Photo Finder is coming to the U.S.┬áThe game launched for the 3DS in Japan earlier this year, and Chibi-Robo fans hoped that it would make it Stateside. It’s coming as an eShop release on Jan. 9.

In Chibi-Robo, players must take photos of real-life objects using the 3DS’s camera in order to bring them into the game’s world as “NostalJunk.” In one example, the player may need to find a toilet paper roll. They snap a photo, and the game converts it into a 3D object that Chibi-Robo adds to his collection.

Chibi-Robo made its gameplay debut on the GameCube in 2006.

A free demo will launch on the same day as the full version.
